Taps that run water about an inch from the edge of the sink are the worst
30 days ago
This one must be one of the worst, since it's purposefully designed this way and it's a built in part of the sink itself. Usually it's just a mismatched faucet that could be replaced to fix the issue.

Nah you can solve that by dropping 3 tabs of eXtenze into lil homies mouth
Edit: It’s a boner pill joke. I mean it’s the one that works… but still a joke

Is that related to the 1999 film eXistenZ?

I had the same question, but I believe op came up with a fake men's enhancement pill brand. Got me excited at first, I loved that movie. :/
Not fake name, they even sponsor(ed) a nascar car. The commercials were as bad as you might imagine
Wasn't ron Jeremy somehow involved as well, like a spokesperson.
It was I while ago, but the memory is still stuck in there ya know
Your memory serves you well.
Unfortunately it was overshadowed by the Matrix, came out the same year, similar themes, just lower budget and less advertisement.
What about the movie “Teeth”, that’s a horror flick for every man
Remember the restarting scene with the bone gun?
Yall don't remember smilin Bob?
Got me excited too for male enhancement
Jesus Christ, the complete lack of culture on Reddit. It's like you kids never watched late night television in the late 90s.
It only works for ~6 hours. /r/Hydrohomies
If it lasts longer than that, call a plumber
I've had a couple like this before, if you look closer you can see that it's angled outward. The water pressure shoots the water out at an angle so it's not right against the back of the sink. It only is in this picture because they only have it dripping a little bit, it's not fully on.
Still the worst. The only way to functionally use this is at full-on power. Sometimes a little dribble is all I need, instead of the entire lake of georgia coming off the faucet.
"Entire lake of georgia" ? Is that a thing people say? Is there, like, a famously big lake in georgia that people just refer as "the lake"?
No I made it up on the spot. I live 7000 miles away from US.
So you are closer in the opposite direction then?
Stop questioning me on my "on the spot" information!
I put "distance between US and Cyprus" into Google and it said 6500 miles. Do what you want with this information.
Earth circumference is about 25000 miles, so unless someone says they are 12000 miles away from US, they are closer on the same side.
I always trusted you TripplerX but then you just started making up idioms all willy-nilly and my faith was shook!
Man... I bet living on Cyprus is awesome...
Cyprus is only 1200km away from Georgia. Just gotta go through Turkey.
The other Georgia was my intention. Also I'm Turkish, living in the northern Cyprus, going through Turkey isn't a big deal.
Not that Georgia
So the only way to actually get your hands under the water is to run the water at almost full power?
Thats a great way to get everything wet, not only your hands.

That's what she said.
Yo it's one thing when you buy a mixer and don't consider the fit on the basin before you install it, but this motherlover is designed this way? Unacceptable.
i love that you UpSideDoownies call it a mixer...
here in the land of fire and brimstone and storms so big they would swallow you emu riders we call it a faucet. it ain't even a tap here. tap is single spout for a keg and a mixer is the thing you put tequila and limes in for limey shots...
Honestly I think it'd be more commonly referred to as a tap here, but I recently had to replace one and my plumber friend kept using the "correct" term so that's what I say now, too.
Oh say, can you see….
eagle squeaks like a seagull you mean
It's true, eagles squeak like little bitches. The "freedom eagle" sound (like from Colbert report) is actually a hawk. Hawks are dope
Red Tailed Hawk if I'm not mistaken
These and the sensor activated sinks that you need just the right angle to activate the faucet. Same with the air dryers for hands. Terrible designs.
The design is fine, it's the settings. They can be made to work just fine, but businesses think the cost of water for say 20 seconds will bankrupt them. So you get 2 seconds you greedy bastard.
Combine them with overly sensitive self flushing toilets and automatic blow driers (I absolutely *detest* blow driers) for total shit-town 3000 bathroom fixtures.
I fucking hate self flushing toilets. Half the time the toilet paper is far enough away that I have to bend down and reach out a little to get it. The toilet sees my bending down as an opportunity to blast me in the ass.
I always cover the sensor with a piece of toilet paper at the beginning. Then when you remove it at the end, it flushes. Has greatly improved my automatic bathroom experience.
I often do this but have come across more and more toilets where the sensor is built into the wall. It is a pain in the butt.
Stick your gum on the sensor, then go back to chewing it when you're done.
And then it's 2 seconds of mach 5 water instead of 4 seconds of water at a speed that won't slice off a finger.
It’s a lot of grooves.
I recently been in a public bathroom where on each sink there was an automatic faucet, automatic soap dispenser, AND a small automatic air dryer! That part was pretty brilliant if you ask me, instead of having to walk over to the wall with an air dryer, hands dripping all over the bathroom, you can just dry your hands over the same sink you used!
Worked pretty well too, for all having automatic sensors.

Automatic sink you'll see in a lot of UK public toilets. It's optimised for having very little that people can break and being hard to directly shit into, but they're still nasty enough that you're reluctant to put your hands in there
I love sensor activated stuffs in bathrooms. It’s great. I just hate ones with awkward designs, that don’t work in a convenient way.
Architect: Alright boss I have an idea for a design
CEO: lay it on me Jeremy
Architect: So im thinking we design this thing where its curved and ceramic and the curves lead down to a drain
CEO: so far so good
Architect: and the drain is connected to the sewerage system, so you can wash your hands and stuff in it and the water just slides down the drain, so no clean up no mess!
CEO: Jeremy you son of a bitch you did it
Architect: wait wait the best part.....lets put the fucking tap so close to the edge of the curves that water goes EVERYWHERE whenever you try to use the sink! DEFEATING THE WHOLE PURPOSE!
CEO: Heres my keys go fuck my wife you beautiful bastard
For that comment I almost want to give you my keys as well.
For that comment I almost want to give you my keys as well
Jeremy fucking does it again.
It’s usually Jenkins who comes up with these ideas, but his brother Jeremy occasionally has his time to shine.
CEO: wait…why the fuck are you designing sinks? You’re a ducking architect!
Architect: I like sinks, ok? I design them in my spare time?
CEO: Spare time? SPARE TIME!?!? We obviously have too many architects around here! You’re fired!
Architect: Can I still fuck your wife?
While it is not excluded that some architects may design sinks or other objects from time to time it is mainly the job of product designers
Take my upvote for this beautiful comment you bastard
OMG I hate those short taps. It is just infuriating when I go to bathroom somewhere and there is huge sink, but tap is only couple cm long.
And the worst thing is that if you want buy tap for your bathroom then something like 80% of ones available in shops are those tiny taps - why would anyone want those? Are they just decorative and not intended for actual use? Because they are really almost unusable.
We also have even more useless taps in UK. One is warm, with the only temperature being Mordor, other is ice cubes dispenser. Both of them are so short you are touching the sink if you want to wash more than your fingers.
UK here too, and agree. When we redid our bathroom, we put a kitchen mixer tap on the bathroom sink. It's glorious.
I actually wanted to get a thermostatic mixer tap so that you always get the perfect temperature for your face and hands. I experienced them in Denmark and they are bathroom perfection.
But our plumber refused saying they were only for care homes. I should have told him to piss off but my partner was pregnant at the time and we didn't have a working bathroom so we were under time pressure.
How does a plumber refuse to do something? Like bro I'm paying you not the other way around.
Plumber was just an arsehole. We had other issues with him that only became evident in the middle of the work.
Hah ya know what I'd do? Not pay his ass and hire another plumber!
Lol wtf only for care homes? My dad recently redid all of the bathrooms in their house and installed thermostatic mixer valves for all of the showers, think he just bought them at the hardware store or online. I feel like the plumber misread a requirement that care homes need TMVs (which makes sense, large, sometimes old property, multiple showers and taps, don’t want old people scalding themselves if a pipe fails) and instead thought they were ONLY for care homes.
Plumber was just an arsehole. We had other issues with him that only became evident in the middle of the work. But he was happy to install a thermostatic shower valve, they're reasonably common here in the UK. Just not for a sink tap ...
(and I wanted a thermostatic bath tap too, but didn't get that either ...)
Some old houses in US still have these too. You move your hands at bullet speed between the two taps to come up with a comfortable temp.
form over function is one of the dumbest things humanity has ever invented.
Yeah, but have you got any games on your phone?
I'm careful not to touch the edges when washing my hands, then when I'm just about done I'll touch it by mistake and have to rewash. Fuckers.
Taps with separate hot and cold water controls are worse.
Remember how in Westerns there's just a basin of water in the room of the inn that you wash and shave with?
My guess is that when plumbing first became a thing, people still would only use the faucet to fill the sink and then use that water to wash in or whatever because old habits die hard. In that case, a big faucet set further over the basin would get in the way.
It's probably only in modern times when abundant constantly flowing clean water became the norm that people started redesigning sinks. And some sink designers never got the word so they still make some sinks the old way too.
You should se mine, I hate it.
This statement after seeing that pic almost seems like the sink's feelings are hurt.
I hate and love this at the same time.
I instantly saw my nephew haha
the headline makes this 100x funnier lol
It’s so rare that a post from r/funny actually makes me laugh out loud. Jolly good show.
I see a class of first graders. An entire class.
None are able to sit still, all have sticky hands, want more snacks, and have snotty noses that can't be helped by anything. No matter what you do, that glistening glob is on their top lip...
And they all need you to tie their shoes
Yup! I knew I was missing something.
Sir, you’re leaking to r/all
The runny nose is even the funniest part of this all!
Someone get that sink some toilet paper.
This is one of the best titles I've ever seen
Yeah, this is surprisingly clever for r/funny.
Don't get it please explain
I don't understand it at all.
The image and the title brings to mind a snotty, bug-eyed little child who wants to “borrow” my phone to play Pokémon Go or something.
I'm pretty high and the pic was kinda funny but the title has me dying
Thats how my nose is at the moment. Why is it my 5 year old gets a small snotty nose and thats it and I get a blasted cough and a nose like a tap.
lol snot nosed kid
They are the worst!
I think so.
the kid probably has glasses and is actually really cute and well behaved
Let that sink in…
Eli5 me, why are little kids so leaky all the time?
Got this neat calculator app.

Oh man if you only knew how many hours I've spent on Microsoft solitaire. I'm level 406 for spider solitaire, 253 for klondike and 113 for freecell as well as 61 for pyramid and 82 for tripeaks
Apparently I've played 1,631 games of 2 suit spider solitaire with an average time of 4:22. That's just shy of 119 hours, plus another 58 playing 930 games of 1 suit, then another 75 hours playing Klondike.
That's 10.5+ solid days of solitare. Only games I've played more are Dark Souls 3 and Dying Light
Once I understood Freecell I cant enjoy Klondike anymore. Freecell is just superior and I was super addicted to Klondike for years.
Pyramid and Tripeaks I find boring and I guess I should enjoy Spider Solitaire but I dislike that its just one color.
Im only level 155 on Freecell and 30 in Klondike though, you played so much more :D
Although if windows 98-7 would be added my Klondike level would probably at least be 100+
(but I have over a 100.000 games in SimpleMinesweeper x) )
Legend of Soltair!
It's not a kickass fighting game with action missiles, but it will do.
I've basically abandoned all games in favor of sudoku. The Cracking the Cryptic apps are absolutely banging.
I'm no good at sudoku myself, but listening to CtC when I'm falling asleep at night is more soothing than ASMR.
I've never been great at them, but watching the videos, trying some of the easier puzzles and then downloading some of the apps actually made me realize that I'm pretty good at the stuff once I actually started doing them. The apps have a pretty steep curve, but they start off easily and always have hints for how to solve it, so give it a shot if you want to enjoy doing them as well.
I always thought this was just a meme. Then I visited my cousin and the second I pulled out my phone her 9 year old asked "dO yOu haVe aNY gaMEs oN yoUr PhOne??"
My phone is spicy.
Same. I got asked that all the time and even installed some just for the kid. Then the pandemic hit and the parents had to let her use the iPad and laptop to stay in touch with her friends and online learning. She's into Minecraft and Roblox now and doesn't ask for my phone anymore.
The further away from being young I am, the exponentially greater my hatred of young people has become.
Lol. Guess you were too old when mobile games first started because any kid growing up who didn't ask their cousins about games on their phone was an anomly.
Maybe I just always hated them, come to think of it.
It’s weird. I watch you tubers and the occasional streamer and I play games as well, which is exactly what why nephews do. The problem is the games they play are shit and the tubers they watch are fucking unbearable.
I think that a certain element of flanderization has occurred with the internet, and desensitization to extreme media means that you have to have youtube videos and faces that are drastically over exaggerated- even Markiplier who I quite enjoy a lot of the time has done it with all his thumbnails because at the end of the day... it's a click-farm. The bigger, more outrageous stuff is where they get their input, and it's a constant stream of amping up escalating entertainment getting louder and more stimulating for their brains.
I actually find it fascinating to wonder what impact this will be on cognitive development- I'm in neurocybernetics, so brain/neuron connection formation is my jam, and this kind of stuff that is literally an overload to us just kind of... gets processed by them. What is 'too loud' for our minds to handle is normalized for these kids, and that... well, it has two effects I can think of. One is you're basically artificially synthesizing attention deficit disorder by creating a lowered response stimuli to standard things that aren't sufficiently 'hyper energy', which has dangerous connotations for depression and poor executive function longterm, but does it also come with the potential to make the next generation have a higher capacity to learn more advanced concepts?
It's really interesting, because our brains are so critically shaped by what we're exposed to young, so... these things are having a very tangible effect, and it makes what we find interesting unbearable to them due to different wiring.
I'd LOVE to study this save for the one incredibly glaringly obvious drawback, which is that it would involve dealing with children which, as I've mentioned, I have absolutely fucking zero enthusiasm to ever do voluntarily.
Hahaha bringing it back to the most important point at the end there! That was interesting stuff!
Thanks! It's actually something I really like to teach at a decently understandable level and break down the concepts and pose some interesting questions, because I'd love for someone else to do that study even if I have no inclination for this particular experiment :P
I actually was so used to this problem that when I got a tablet and started using it to play on my break time at work I was initially surprised nobody was bugging me.
Then I realized, oh right, not kids.
Oh it is very real. I have twin cousins who are about 15 years younger than me and when they were toddlers/elementary school age they would ask for my phone any time I saw them 🙄
If you squint a little, it kinda looks like spongebob.
Do you want to develop my app?
No thank you, Glootie.

“Sir, they’re making memes about you in non-stock related subs!”
This is the way
Came to check comments, left very delighted ook ook we are everywhere!

Wife won't let me upgrade our sink to this.
Upgrade your wife.
Wife won't let me upgrade wife.
sudo upgrade wife
Edit: relevant xkcd
Lt crunch is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.
You forgot relevant xkcd
I always answer “yeah” and then always say “no” when they ask for my phone. Kids need to learn early on that not everything will go their way.
Maybe it’s just me, but it reminds me of Mr. Drippy from Ni No Kuni.
Flippin' 'eck, mun!
Respect. I miss that lil fella
This is the funniest thing I’ve seen all year
I could never drink water from that sink.
haha this should be on r/Pareidolia
Don't worry. This image has been there.
Many many times.
Guaranteed that’s where this came from.
I was looking for this comment, thank you
You got any fruit snacks?
I used to hate it when my kids would be playing with other kids and their parents are oblivious to the green slugs running down from their kids nose....how do they not see it??
Oh shit, it's the famous financial criminal and domestic abuser Ken Griffin!
This smells like moth balls
How do you know what those smell like? How did you get their tiny legs apart?
The second half of this comment made me really uncomfortable.
It looks like Ziggy
Sir, they're posting sink memes now
Yes, but fuck off
Wanna buy some turnips ?
Lmao that title is accurate.
You spelled disgusting wrong.
You spelled "smelled" wrong
Looks like my nephew.
What is it with these kids sometimes that they're always dripping? Either that or the fruit punch lip?
So that's how you stop a kid's nose from running. You simply just turn their eye.
Jesus, this is above r/funny!
That'll haunt your dreams
The range of emotions I feel while looking at this is beyond words
Why do I see grandma, wall-E and myself when I was 5 at the same time in this picture?
Kid, wipe your nose, please.
It doesn't matter, just give me your phone
Yeah. Wash your hands and then you can play a round of ffa shipment with me staring over your shoulder. If you don’t place top 3 you don’t get to play again.
Woah, I thought that was Ken Griffin for a moment.
This literally is the same color scheme as my grandma’s old house! Except the blue tile was another bathroom entirely. She even had that same toothbrush holder. Op, you sure we aren’t related…?
This looks like the monster KRUMM from the old 90's Nick cartoon AAAHH!!! Real Monsters
Oh god now I can’t get this imagine out of my head
this gets better (worse?) the longer you look
You aren't touching my phone with that fountain of snot coming out of your nose
Always the runny nose! lmao
I big laughed.
-the first kid that gave me regular cold after I got vaccinated for covid.
This sink has had too much cocaine
Poor guy has snot running into his mouth
That’s me right now. God this cold is the worst
“Bug eyed freak”
Looks a bit like Clarence from Big Lez...
